dc.description.abstract Sustainable energy, including solar power, wind power, and geothermal power, is very attractive since the utilization of sustainable resources can significantly decrease the emission and protect our environment. Also, the use of such energy can enhance the national energy security and reduce the dependence on the imported fossil fuel. Till now, several energy-related courses, such as Fuel Cells, Sustainable Energy, and Hybrid Vehicles, have been offered at the University of Bridgeport. In order to have hands-on experience, a laboratory is necessary for our engineering students with their interest in the sustainable energy as well as smart grid. A course, Sustainable Energy Laboratory, was proposed by the school’s curriculum committed and it is offered in the Spring semester, 2011. In this course, a series of experiments are designed on the operating and testing of solar panels, wind turbine, fuel cell. Moreover, experiments on power electronics and data acquisition are developed to optimize the utilization of different energy sources. Finally, simulation on smart grid power system and hybrid power system will help the students understand the challenges in the use of sustainable energy resources. en_US
